2019 Buick Regal Sportback
My 2019 Buick Regal Sportback was rear-ended in a chain collision caused by a commercial box truck (tailgating) in Delaware on October 30. Since then my car at the collision center waiting for a rear body panel that has been on national backorder for months. Has anyone else had trouble getting their vehicles repaired from a collision due to the availability of parts? There is no ETA on the availability of parts and I'm going to be driving a rental indefinitely until the part can be sourced.

Not a collision related (defect from factory) but I had to wait six months for an airbag.

Others have complained of similar waits.

My car has been at the body shop since mid October. The GM strike did not help things with sourcing the parts. I was told a couple of weeks ago that they had all the parts, so I hope I'm out of the rental soon.

There is hope for me, I guess.

If we're "lucky" we might get the Fusion Active which is an Outback-ed Fusion. That spy shot is recent and was seen tooling around SE Michigan.

Maybe Subaru will wise up and build a Legacy XT (turbo) 6 speed manual and I can go back to sedans when I'm looking again in 2025 or so.

That’s what we get for buying a German Made “Captive Import”.

I wonder if the Buick Chinese made Captive Import is the same?

A quote from a report on The Truth About Cars:

"Confirmed by a brand spokesman, the 2020 model year will be the midsize Regal’s last in the North American market."

I was rear ended August 2nd I'm still getting the runaround from GM about parts availability. Has anyone had any luck?
